Warmamas is a project about a special group of mothers. They are the mothers of soldiers who serve - or have served - in our military in a time of war. The majority of these soldiers have been deployed to the Middle East and Southwest Asia. Most have returned home. Some have not. This project attempts to provide the mothers of these soldiers a public platform on which to tell their own stories, each narrative as unique as it is universal.
Partnering with StoryCorps
StoryCorps partnered with Warmamas and the University of Miami in 2014 and 2015 as part of the Military Voices Initiative, a congressionally-mandated project dedicated to all veterans and their families. These interviews are now archived in UM's StoryCorps/Warmamas Community Archive as well as in the Library of Congress, Washington, DC.
